10 Days of Giveaways: Comment to Win NARS Sandra Eyeshadow Duo

Published in: Just For Fun

The giveaway is now closed, and I’m contacting the winner by e-mail. Good luck!

NARS Sandra Eyeshadow Duo
The beach at Haleiwa on Oahu’s North Shore

Snorkeling doesn’t bite

I’ve mentioned Shark’s Cove before as a top snorkeling spot here on Oahu. Another, more famous one is Hanauma Bay, but Shark’s Cove is free and easily accessible (there’s a fee to park and visit Hanauma Bay).


The cove gets its name from the shape of the reef as seen from above and NOT because it’s crawling with sharks. πŸ™‚

It’s located right off the side of the road across the street from a grocery store and a snorkeling rental shop, and visiting is as easy as parking the car.

Yesterday El Hub and I spent a few hours tooling around in the water, joining schools of fish and looking for sea turtles (no luck!).

NARS Sandra Eyeshadow Duo

After a summery afternoon spent exploring undersea worlds, a girl’s gotta have colors she can wear out at night, like the two colors featured in today’s giveaway.

The prize


One lucky lady will win the NARS Sandra Eyeshadow Duo (a $32 value).

NARS used the same longwearing crease resistant formula they use for their single eyeshadows in this useful color combination of Bone and Silver Mist. Worn together or alone (wet or dry), they can be applied sheer or built up for a more dramatic effect.

  • Richly pigmented powders
  • Effortless blending and color coordinated
  • Multifunction: use as eyeshadow, eyeliner or on eyebrows

How to enter

    I don’t use the glitter stripe in the Word of Mouth Trio for anything other than a pretty divider between the shadows, so can I count that as a duo? If not, can I go throw two singles, Vapour & Dovefeather, in an eyeglasses case & call it a duo? Pretty please?

    Hi Karen,

    That’s actually really tricky. Not overly original but my favourite’s the Clinique duo in strawberry fudge. I’d usually run a mile from pink eyeshadow but the one in this duo’s really beautiful.

  74. rebecca says:

    stila summer palette from about 6 years ago. I stocked up on them!

  75. ritadebora says:

  81. Marisol says:

    MAC’s Love Connection

  82. Regina S says:

    I don’t remember you made it but it was a duo of dark grey and light grey.

  83. victoria says:

    i don’t have a duo but my favorite combination is mac satin taupe and embark.

  84. cheryl says:

    i love Nars’ Jolie Poupee eyeshadow duo. The shadows are so pigmented and makes my brown eyes pop! the colors are so pretty, i love it!

  85. Annmarie says:

    I only own one duo and that’s M.A.C.’s Heat Element Mineralized Eye Shadow. It consists of a bronzy color and a rich red cranberry color and looks great over MAC’s Sharkskin Shadestick. It’s a beautiful combo that works very well for blue eyes. It’s also multifunctional and has minimal fall out. I’ve used both shades on my lips with a gloss, also I have used it wet for a foiled look.

  86. Shiny says:

    The only one I have is by the brand Chambor… pretty bright golds and pinks – looks great with Indian clothes!

  87. Jessica says:

    A duo from Nars, it is blue and bright green.

  88. Cristina says:

    Nars Belly Dance. Its this violet purple shade, with this forest green. I totally love it!

  89. redhead says:

    My very first one was the Sweet Liason Suite Array Duo from MAC (brown-black loaded with small gold flecks and bronze glitter, and pale yellowish white-gold sprinkled with pale yellow flecks). The texture is very chalky for the white-gold, but the deep brown is extremely pigmented, if not just a tad gritty. Unfortunately, the two colors didn’t complement the other at all πŸ™ The next duo I bought was L’Oreal’s Wear Infinite Shadow Duos in Forest. The pale shimmery lime is pretty, but it’s nothing to get excited about. The other color, however, is the most GORGEOUS shade of rich, deep, pigmented shimmery warm forest green I’ve ever seen! It’s even better than MAC Humid. Love!

  90. Ingrid says:

    My absolute favorite e/s duo is NARS mediterreanee, it’s unique & really brings out the blue in my gray-blue eyes. It’s not something everyone else wears; I like the boldness of the sparkly orange e/s and the highlight shade isn’t blah either, it has a lot of depth.

  91. Nicole15 says:

    My favorite duo of all time was a GWP from Lancome. I usually don’t like the Lancome GWP’s but this one was an exception. It is called the Exceptional Wear Eye Coulour Duo in Creme Lustre & Pink Veil. Both shadows were full-size pans & I managed to hit pan on both of them which is rare for me. Definitely my all time fave duo!

  92. Chelsea says:

    L’oreal hip duo in flamboyant

  93. McKenzie says:

  102. Farrah says:

    My fave duo is hip sassy. I went to Shark’s cove a couple of years ago, and me and my daughter were “trapped” in one of the coves with a huge sea turtle!!!! Scary but exhilerating at the same time! Amazing creatures!

  103. Joyce says:

    Don’t have a favorite duo yet honestly…one day!

  108. Laddie says:

    I don’t have a favorite, I haven’t used much e/s duos. πŸ™

  109. Vivian says:

    Hi, Karen. To tell you the truth, I’ve few duos. I’ve purchased trios, palettes, singles, but only few duos. I’m liking L’oreal HIP one with the yellow and the purple. I like how they go on me, so smooth and their color payoff is decent. (although I do prefer lighter colors, these could be a softer color payoff.) Their price is not too bad. And the design is awesome! πŸ™‚

  110. Neena says:

    My favorite duo would be the Clinique eyeshadow duo in strawberry fudge. The pink is a nice light flush of color while the brown shade is the perfect neutral crease shade. Perfect for my teaching job!

  111. Ann says:

    Definitely NARS duo in Jolie Poupée!

  112. Jessica says:

  123. Stephie says:

    I can’t say I have a specifc fav e/s duo, even though I do own some Stila ones. But anyway I would day my fav e/s combo πŸ˜› currently is MAC all that glitters and UD Oil Slick.

  124. Ashley Jean says:

    Don’t have many duos, but my favorite so far is NARS Blade Runner for a retro-futuristic smokey eye (one of my favorite movies too!)NARS is great at coming up with combos that are perfect and unexpected.

  125. landwhale says:

    Ha…I only own two duo eyeshadows and of the two, Nars Charade is my favorite. At first try, I hated it because i thought the colors were bland/too similar and didn’t work on my warm toned skin. However, after repeat tries and using eyeliner, I find this duo to be a great understated eye.

  126. Michelle says:

    HIP duo in Gunmetal!:D
